Nocturnal Surveying for the WI BBA

Tonight, I found a great horned owl that flew in from over a treeline from some northwesterly direction, perched atop a tree near where I was parked, and then flew off to hunt. It was descending as it flew off, so that’s why I guessed it had heard something and was going after prey. Since it was descending, I made a guess as to where it landed, though it flew out of sight. I was so excited because I’ve been looking for this species in my block, but it gave no clue as to if it was actively breeding.
